FOX prevailed on Saturday, on the back of a 49ers-Packers NFL game, while the 2012 Miss America Pageant on ABC dropped 11% from last year. NBC won the demos on Sunday, via Hollywood's (second) biggest awards ceremony. CBS drew more total viewers though, as is so often the case.
NBC's broadcast of the aforementioned Golden Globes managed to climb up over a full point from last year's soiree. The lack of an NFL lead-in on FOX led to huge drops for every Animation Domination program, other than the Cleveland Show, which matched its last new episode. The Simpsons took the biggest hit, falling almost two full ratings points. Bob's Burgers, Family Guy, and American Dad took big hits too, but to lesser degrees.
Once Upon A Time dropped three tenths from last week. Revenge dropped four, tying its previous season demo low. Happy Endings tied its season low as well. Don't Trust The B In Apt. 23 managed to do them all one "better", setting a hideous new series low of 0.8. Ouch. ABC can't be happy.
CBS' ratings are likely to change it a bit in the next few days, as a long-running football game caused an over 60 minute delay of the prime-time lineup. The numbers below are the data we currently have, but due to the odd scheduling, I'm not going to bother with any pattern analysis as to rises and falls from last weekend.
